Transport equipment is used to move material from one location to another (e.g.,
between workplaces, between a loading dock and a storage area, etc.) within a facility or
at a site.
The major subcategories of transport equipment are:
- Conveyors. Equipment used to move materials over a
fixed path between specific points.
- Cranes. Equipment used to move materials over
variable paths within a restricted area.
- Industrial Trucks. Equipment used to move
materials over variable paths, with no restrictions on the area covered by the movement
(i.e., unrestricted area).
- No Equipment. Material can also be transported
manually using no equipment.
